The people living darkness have seen a great light, on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.
Our Pastor spoke about this verse Sunday at church and it really made me think about what kind of path we leave as we go through life and others see. I want my children and grand children to know and see that I follow the straight path. I am not perfect and I stumble upon many rocks along the way but I do have Jesus Christ who gives me peace and joy as I travel this path. I know that Jesus died for me on the cross so that mine and your sins may be forgiven. He freely gives us grace and salvation all we have to do is open that door and let Jesus in our heart.You will never be the same again. Some people think it means you become boring and no fun, a slave, chained, but it is the exact opposite. You are in chains and darkness until you find Jesus Christ.The freedom, the light, the love Jesus gives is radical. As you go through life, yes there will be sorrow and tough times, but deep inside you can find the peace and joy to survive that only Jesus can give. We have hope knowing one day we will be with Jesus Christ. So choose to walk the straight path that others can see which leads to Jesus and his love, peace, and joy.
Bible Journaling, who ever heard of such? I am not sure if it is because I was raised Catholic or what but I have always considered the bible something scared that you did not write in it, I might place notes, cards, etc… In it but never write in my bible. I guess as a Catholic I felt God was this almighty, powerful God that I feared, and therefore could not get close to him. I have learned though the years that I can have a close personal relationship with God through his son Jesus Christ. The bible is God’s love relationship with us, and he and I can talk to each other through the word. I can write, journal, in my bible my thoughts, fears, important verses I want to remember, etc… And it is ok.
I have been looking a lot at bible journaling lately. Today I decided to do my first bible journaling, nothing beautiful , but it is a start.
